About this book

Experimental Cell Biology of Taste and Olfaction examines and adapts methods from a variety of established fields, such as neurophysiology, receptor biochemistry and cellular imaging to provide comprehensive coverage of current techniques and protocols in chemosensory cell biology. Written for both newcomers and established scientists, this volume offers numerous tips for problem solving and suggests ways to avoid the most common, and costly, mistakes made by researchers.This book covers general aspects such as tissue collection and preparation, as well as specific, up-to-date methods used in taste and olfactory morphology, immunology, biochemistry, biophysics, electrophysiology and molecular biology. The explosion of knowledge and the increased interest in these areas make this book an important reference work for all scientists, students, and teachers in this and related fields
